California To Sue Diebold; Diebold Pleased
from the and-it-goes-on-and-on... dept
The latest in the Diebold saga in California is that Attorney General Bill Lockyer has decided to sue the company, saying they made false claims about their product. Amusingly, Diebold continues to mislead in their response to the lawsuit by noting that they are: “pleased Lockyer dropped the probe.” When the only reason the probe has been dropped is because there’s enough info to sue, it seems like there’s not much to be “pleased” about.

civil vs. criminal action
The Reuters is somewhat garbled (no surprise there), but I think the “probe” Diebold refers to was about a criminal complaint, which could have been a lot more serious than the civil suit that the AG is now pursuing. So Diebold’s comment does actually make some sense.
